Cerebral large vessel vasculitis in systemic lupus erythematosus.

 

A female patient with the diagnosis of SLE presented with stroke-like symptoms, headache and vertigo, and palpable purpura on her legs. Further investigations revealed that she suffered from both vasculitis of the cerebral large vessels and coexisting cutaneous small-vessel vasculitis. PubMed, Lupus, 2014 Jun 26.
